Any suggestions on a possible scratch guards for underside of front bumper? I have bottomed out the bumper on two occassions while driving over road dips and once on a parking spot front curb. Fairly deep scratches although not visible unless you look under the bumper - but I know they are there. Thanks.

My wife and I have the same problem. There are occasions when one of us parks by feel!

I try to not fixate on it but I know that they are there.

I've not found a solution/guard. It is hard to protect plastic from a moving +4,500lb object. Sounds like a million dollar idea waiting for a solution.

I've scraped numerous bumpers (curbs/garage door) over the years. It's just inherent with low riding vehicles and plastic bumpers. This makes you miss chrome/metal bumpers from the good ole days. I learned to drive on a 1975 Chevy Impala. It would do more damage to the object being hit than the bumper.:cool:

I am now uber cautious when parking and use the cameras/parking sensors to avoid these boo boos.

Serendipitously, I stopped by my detail guys shop this week. He was selling SlipLo Universal Skid plate. I cannot speak to how this works as I have not tried it. This appears to protect the underside of the bumper and provide a little bit of protection for the lowest part of the front lip. I'd be interested in feedback from anyone that has used this.

Thanks for the info; just ordered a set of the Sliplo Skid Plates and will post an update after install and use. BTW if you use promo code CCAD10OFF you can receive 10% off courtesy of a youtuber who posted a review.

Yes, thank you much. SlipLo is on the list.
